Pesto? Presto!

While pesto is clearly a summer food, if there's fresh basil around it just might be begging to be blended up into a savory sauce. Ah, pesto. This here batch came out mighty good-I diverted from the traditional pine nut variety by throwing in almonds instead.

Try this at home! Blend the following ingredients to taste
*A big handful of basil
*Your favorite variety of nuts-if anyone has tried peanuts, I'm curious to hear how this tastes
*Olive oil
*Cloves of fresh garlic
*Parmesan cheese
*Salt

Yikes! You have a food processor! Stay away from peanuts in your pesto. They're really not nuts, they're legumes.

Hi!
We were going to make pesto one day and realized I dinĀ“t have any pine nuts, so sent husband down to bar and he came up with a bag of peanuts, it was quite nice.
Thanks
Bye
